When you Travel Like an Architect you will learn how the world works. It may come as a small surprise to many, and a little surprise to a few, but not everything is the same everywhere. Money is not the same – the value may not be the same, measurements are different (at least for us […]

September to November, during hurricane season. Embrace new experiences, and you can have a great time while saving money. For our honeymoon cruise, in 1996, we embraced hurricane Lili. Read the back story on our blog: book-a-cruise.info/cruising-in-hurricane-season/. Standard cruise line strategy is to avoid storms, even small ones, as nobody likes bad weather on their vacation.

The entertainers on the ship have it good. They are someplace near the top of the food chain and always seem happy. Our favorite to date is Mr. Greg Gallello, who is just completing his contract on Holland America’s Eurodam this week. We met Greg in 2008 on the maiden voyage across the Atlantic Ocean of […]

To Travel like an Architect you have to have a plan – blueprint your vacation. After you book, you can do it yourself or get help from a travel professional. There are different ways to go about it, depending on your learning style and preference. Here are some of the ways we do research about destinations […]
To “Travel Like an Architect™,” you will have to (indeed WANT to) work on your vacation! WAIT! DO NOT PANIC!
One reason you will WANT to work on your vacation is a LITTLE work makes for a MUCH longer vacation. Plus, you will find sitting on your balcony, cruising the ocean, and FREE room service makes two to four hours of work just FLOAT ON by.
Cruising allows an employee or business owner to maintain contact with “the home office.” If you own a business, you understand how difficult it is to be isolated from the daily operations. If you are an employee, you might find your boss is quite willing to let you vacation longer when you make yourself VERY available.
We LOVE cruising because it accommodates being away from work so well. We can visit foreign countries and out-of-the-way places and still remain “connected.” For example: We had cell service and Internet the ENTIRE length of the Amazon River! When we started cruising, we relied ENTIRELY on the ship’s connection to the world. Cruise ships have/own a cell tower ON the boat, as well as satellite Internet. You do have to purchase this in addition to the cruise, and we purchase in a package to get a better deal. Because your “tower” travels with you, cell and Internet service are available even in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean! This also means that MANY carriers have FREE texting.
More recently, we have found FREE Internet while on land. MANY port facilities offer free connections within the terminal buildings. AND, you will frequently find us in social media at the “bar of the day,” because you can ALWAYS get the WiFi (pronounced wiffe) code in exchange for a delicious libation.
Try it! A little work and a LOT of vacation equals “Traveling Like an Architect”!

Food is everywhere on a cruise, all the time. The choices are endless. If you are to avoid gaining that extra 10 pounds that you just trimmed off in preparation of your trip you will need a plan and an associated personal commitment. Where most people fail is going on a cruise with an open […]
